INSTRUMENTATION FOR LIGHT AIRCRAFT, FOR ALL

OPEN GAUGE v1

01 / OPEN-SOURCE

Design files, code, parts lists, and advice are free-just ask! Assembled versions and kits will be available in the future as the design is refined and tested.

02 / ACCURATE

Drone-grade sensors and electronics ensure phenomenal precision. Altitude is accurate to 66 cm. Speed is accurate to 0.1 km/h. 

This is equal to any consumer GPS unit on the market.
 

03 / AFFORDABLE

Built yourself, excluding the case, the standard parts list comes out to just over $100. Less, if you find better deals or already have some of the hardware on-hand.

OUR STORY

When choosing light aircraft instruments, there are usually 3 choices: Cheap and feature lacking, expensive and complicated, or risking a cell phone to drops and damages.

In the world of open-source and tinkering, there is a space for affordable, simple, and accurate instrumentation for light aircraft pilots. 

OUR VISION

The "Open" in OpenGauge means open-sourced. The code is free, the case design files are free, and the parts lists are free. And most of the parts themselves are open sourced! It has been a huge undertaking, but spreading the knowledge and availability of quality instrumentation is paramount.

OUR TECHNOLOGY

High quality, easy-to-find sensors feed an arduino-based micro controller, printing all the data you need on a 20x4 LCD screen. The code makes the magic happen, blending data from the 3 sensors into precise and reliable information every pilot needs. A 2200 mah Li-Ion battery and integrated charger allows for up to 10 hours of constant usage.

IMPORTANT

-STILL A PROTOTYPE!-

Open Gauge is intended to inform the Pilot-In-Command of useful data while in flight. While built with accurate sensors and tested thoroughly, Open Gauge is not an IFR instrument. Piloting aircraft carries inherent risks, and Open Gauge cannot be guaranteed to decrease those risks or relay correct information. Users should not rely solely on Open Gauge to make safe flight decisions. User assumes all risks.
